On Cosmetic Surgery in Light of Aging

John Piper argues that American culture is dominated by an infatuation for youth. Everything hip and cool is related to youth. And, the ideal for body image is youth -old age is highly under valued. "It is good to grow old with God." He ends stating:
"So I am not inclined to think that I would counsel anybody to spend a lot of God's precious money on their looks instead of missions. OK?
